At EBC we aim to give the students a history curriculum that:
- Is rooted in academic research and recent historians’ thinking.
- Gives them opportunities to learn a range of histories, representative of cultures, ethnicities and genders.
- Debunks common misconceptions about the past to give them a richer and ‘truer’ understanding of history.
- Challenges them to think deeply and critically about the past and their identity is rooted in it.
- Provides them with the tools to become sophisticated speakers and writers
- Is rich in knowledge to provide them with a solid foundation of the history of the world
- Exposes them to historical ways of writing, speaking and exploring the past.
Through this education we hope that the students will:
- Become thoughtful learners, who are curious and want to learn more about the world that they live in.
- Want to be active participants in society through the knowledge of how people can make a difference.
- Be able to ask great questions and challenge the history that they are taught.
The aims of the KS3 curriculum are:
- To understand that historians create contrasting interpretations of the past based on sources of evidence, and that these interpretations have changed over time
- Be able to infer from evidence about events and people
- Be confident support their view on the significance of events, their causes and consequences, similarities and differences using historical knowledge
